The Jacob's Well housing project for homeless mothers and children.

The Rotary Club of Edmonds Daybreakers recently donated $2,000 to the Jacob’s Well housing project for homeless mothers and children.  This project, located in the Edmonds-Shoreline area, is being coordinated through Vision House, a Shoreline-based organization that is building housing for homeless women and children.

Edmonds-based Campbell-Nelson Motors earlier this year announced it will match donations dollar for dollar — up to $50,000 — for the project.

Rotary Club of Shoreline Breakfast also gave $2,000. Their donation, along with the donation from the Edmonds Daybreakers group, was matched by a Rotary District 5030 grant for the homeless.  Then a challenge gift to Vision House doubled Rotary’s gifts, for a total of $16,000.

According to Al Hendricks of Edmonds Daybreakers, the Rotary donation will pay for the large outside doors and other items needed to get the building sealed up and secure for the winter.
